You and me both, buddy. The only other film of this style (unless you go back and include Cannibal Holocaust) that I like is [REC]. 'Cause most of the time you're screaming at the screen, "Drop the stupid camera and RUN, asshole!"
That style worked in [REC], as the whole thing was supposed to be a news report.
Still, V/H/S does have it's share of inspired moments, but they're few and far between. The first story works (other than "I Like You" girl) because it's supposedly coming from an embedded camera in one chararacter's glasses.
